Bạn đang xem: That being said là gì

I want to know the meanings of these phrases Having said that & That being said, the difference between them, & in which context I can use both of them.

According to my first understanding of these expressions, I think they are equivalent to the phrase "Considering what was said before" or in "reference to lớn what has already been said". I am not sure of the meaning, but hope khổng lồ find its exact meaning.


They are both well-understood idioms, mostly used in a context in which you are about to lớn state a paradox, or contradiction, e.g.:

John failed all his A levels. But having said that he is highly literate in matters of IT and has found a well paid job immediately.

Englvà are underdogs for their opening World Cup fixture against Italy. That being said it is not unknown for the Italians khổng lồ thua thảm an opening match against ranked outsiders, such as when they were beaten by Irelvà in New York in 1994.

Both of them mean, và could easily be replaced with "Notwithstanding that..."


They are pretty literal. Having said that is usually followed by a clause with the speaker of that as the subject.

"Having said that, I think ..." OR "Having said that, he sat down again..."

"That being said" doesn"t have any implications on who said it.
